Traditionally, NLP trainers teach the Meta Model to their students using the "Meta Model violation" and "Meta Model challenge" formats.
While this paradigm may work sometimes in therapeutic encounters, it usually does not in the real world and everyday life.
Try to use a Meta Model challenge when you're talking to someone you barely know. They might just punch you in the face -- even if they don't, they'd probably want to.
It's a terrible structure to use in other contexts.
When you shift the intonation of your question, you move from a challenge to an inquisitive question.
And when you do, you completely change the ball game.
This weekend, play with your intonation.
Go up. Go flat. Go down.
Play your voice like a Stradivarius.
Same words. Different sounds.
Have a good weekend, and I'll talk to you on Monday.
